HAFS summer colloquium May 28-30, NCWCP

May 28, 2024 8:00 am - May 30, 2024 5:00 pm EDT
Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System (HAFS) is NOAA’s new coupled atmosphere-ocean-wave model suitable for tropical cyclone (TC) research and forecasting in all Northern and Southern Hemisphere ocean basins. To facilitate the training of graduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral students and increase the participation of students from traditionally underrepresented communities with the use of HAFS, HFIP and NCAS-M are endorsing a Summer Colloquium scheduled for
Date: May 28-30, 2024. 
Location:  NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD
Goals of the Summer Colloquium
  1. Lectures on all aspects of HAFS, including infrastructure, model physics and dynamics, nesting, initialization, coupling with the ocean, post-processing, and vortex tracking;
  2. HAFS’s multiple configurations, TC verification, HAFS ensemble system;
  3. NCEP’s plans for TC numerical weather prediction will be presented;
  4. Practical sessions will give tutorial participants hands-on experience in running HAFS.

This event will be held at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD.  Jointly organized by the NOAA Center for Atmospheric Science and Meteorology (NCAS-M),  NOAA’s Environmental Modeling Center (EMC), and NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) this colloquium will feature presentations and tutorials by the main HAFS developers. This event is also expected to set the stage for the dissemination of HAFS to the broader community in the near future
